Genesis 12:1-3 records one of the earliest covenants made by God. “Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

Notice that the promises of God to Abram were unaccompanied by rationalizations or explanations. “I will shew… I will make… I will bless…” God entered into covenants in order to show that He is faithful, and that He keeps promises. The covenants of God are 100% pure grace – the unmerited favor and blessings of God. A born-again believer on the Lord Jesus Christ is saved by God’s grace, and kept eternally secure by God’s grace.
